Jerzy Neyman and Elizabeth Scott developed the idea of synthetic plots. These plots are a display of the data values of an experiment side by side with a display of simulated data values, with the simulation-based on a considered stochastic model. The Neyman and Scott work concerned the distribution of galaxies on the celestial sphere. A review of their wo is presented here followed by personal examples from hydrology, neuroscience, and animal motion.
